Michael McCaffrey

Michael McCaffrey joined the ACLC team as Lead Facilitator in 2019, bringing 15 years of experience as an educator and leader in highly successful and diverse middle and high school settings. He received his B.A. from UC Berkeley and his Ed.M. from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Michael has worked with young people all his adult life. Each day, he seeks to put into action his belief that all students can learn and that all teachers can continue to improve their practice to support students in becoming their best selves.

Before joining ACLC, Michael served as the principal at Epic Charter Academy in Oakland's Fruitvale neighborhood and helped Epic achieve some of the greatest growth of any middle school program in Oakland. Before that, he spent 11 years at Leadership Public Schools in Hayward as a teacher, teacher leader, Academic Dean, and as Assistant Principal. When Michael left LPS-Hayward, it was the 2nd highest performing public high school in California, graduating 100% of students and securing them all admission to university. At ACLC, Michael is excited to lead an already successful team of facilitators to even greater heights in their service of students.
